I shouldn't have made fun of Hornady Z-Max.

Judging from the internet, part of being a "prepper" is that any time a news story comes on about something that could be bad, Solar flare EMPbola 5N stock market ISILflation crashes, or whatever, you warn everybody that "This is it!" and then run down to the basement and load magazines while rolling around atop a pile of MREs until it's time to go to work the next day, and sometimes that seems a little silly but...

...zomg! This is it! ZOMBIES!

Be right back. I gotta go load magazines while rolling around on my pile of MREs.

On a more serious note, this is a good reminder about how hard it is to treat diseases like Ebola with the resources of a Third World medical system, where not-actually-dead-yet people are getting carted to the cemetery. (And remember, if you're a prepper of the doomsday variety: If there is a TEOTWAWKI event, you'll wish that your post-apocalypse medical system was as robust as that of, say, Liberia.)
